Radiation Training


1. You must first create an RSC user account.

2. You must then complete RSC safety training.

3. You must complete or be enrolled in EMA 6518 OR discuss with staff all material relevant to your intended scope of work outlined in the “TEM competency assessment” document listed under the “Docs” page. If you do not already have authorization via completion of or enrollment in EMA 6518, you will be directed to a quiz sign up link when requesting training.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the time and cost associated with being trained on this instrument, if you only have a few specimens needing analysis, we strongly recommend you request service, rather than training.
